Nationally known author and workshop facilitator Robin A. Edgar offers her reminiscence workshops for organizations such as Hospice, Parkinson, and Alzheimer’s Associations. Based on her book, In My Mother’s Kitchen, she demonstrates how to use sense memory to recall and recognize the individuals and incidents that shaped our lives. This creative process is an effective tool to record family histories as well as to cope with loss or change due to illness or the death of a loved one. The principles from The Healing Power of Reminiscence Workshop benefit social workers, chaplains, nurses, and counselors as well as volunteers and family caregivers.
